It is not often that Sweet Cheeks a.k.a my husband and I get to spend the day together as he works 6 days a week often ten to twelve hours a day and I work 3-4 12 hour shifts a week which when combined with the commute turns in to 14 hours a day away from home. I am not complaining it is what it is so it is rare event when we get a day off to just be and Monday was just such a day.
We went over to the Coast but I didn't take any photos because when I got out of the car I thought we were only going to the bathroom but ended up walking a 1.4 mile trail on Whalen Island. It was magical because there was only a few other people there and we found a cove and just sat on the beach enjoying being together watching the gulls and the ocean while lying in the sand. It amazes me that sometime the things I cherish the most aren't things but moments with those I love and this was one of them . We drove on up to Rockaway Beach and the Manhattan Beach Wayside which I hadn't been to before and walked a path up to a bench where we just sat and watched the majestic ocean which we so love. The day was magical and one I treasure.
I hope this weekend when I am off to take pics to share here. It seems hope still resides within me and feels ready to take flight again. Such is the MAGIC OF AN ORDINARY DAY.
I want to thank all of you for all your encouragement . I also ask that you keep my friend Jan down in TX in your prayers as they deal with Hurricane Dolly.I also want to thank Brezomayo for letting me use the beautiful photo from Flickr. I encourage you to visit her Etsy Shop Brezomayo Designs.
